Fort Worth & Galveston Enforcement of Visitation Lawyer
When the judge issues a divorce decree, he or she will also issue orders concerning child custody, visitation, child support, alimony and property division. If your ex-spouse violates one of those orders, you can seek an enforcement order. That order will direct the sheriff or other law enforcement personnel to do what is necessary to reinstate the conditions of the original order. If the violation is deemed egregious enough, the violator can be put in jail or placed on probation. You may also be able to obtain reimbursement of your legal expenses and court costs.

Tarrant County Property Division Orders Attorney
When it is approved by the court, a property division settlement reached by the parties becomes a court order. Violating the terms of that order — for example, by refusing to transfer an asset as agreed to in a settlement — can have serious consequences. If your ex-spouse has violated a property division order, my firm can take action to enforce that order, including the garnishment of wages or the seizure of property.
